Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  • 2017
  • US
  • 137 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Gunn
  • Written by: James Gunn
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Kurt Russell

The gang are back, with a rollicking plot involving stolen batteries and Ego (Russell) who may or may not be the long-lost dad of Peter Quill (Pratt). It’s very CGI-heavy, sometimes tiringly so, but the humour still charms and the finale picks it up after a sluggish second act.

  • Directed by: Katell Quillévéré
  • Cast: Tahar Rahim, Bouli Lanners, Anne Dorval, Emmanuelle Seigner

Teenager Simon (Verdet) has no sense of his own mortality, but when he’s fatally injured in a car accident, his mother (Seigner) has to decide what to do with his organs. Wonderfully credible and humane, with intriguing stories, an impressive cast and a reverence for life which can be felt in every frame.

Lady Macbeth

  • Directed by: William Oldroyd
  • Cast: Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Naomi Ackie

Katherine (Pugh) is a young bride shackled to a middle-aged man; when left alone in the grand manor house she begins an affair with a stable-hand (Jarvis) and it all goes downhill. Restrained, compulsively watchable debut feature with a chilling, droll performance from Pugh as the wicked but compelling Katherine.

Their Finest

Their Finest
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 117 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lone Scherfig
  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy

London, 1940: fledgling screenwriter Catrin Cole (Arterton) joins the Ministry of Information’s Film Division and starts working on a propaganda movie. Scherfig wraps the war in a cosy cloak of nostalgia in a way that dulls moments of high anxiety, and despite a fine ensemble it’s all too muffled and mild-mannered.
